This Hoarder’s Roach-infested LES Apartment Had a Dead Cat in it [VIDEO]

Posted on: July 17th, 2017 at 5:08 am by

“Whatever you’ve seen, you’ve never seen nothing like this,” Lower East Side superintendent Martin Fernandez quipped in a YouTube clip showing the cleanup of an evicted hoarder’s unidentified Lower East Side apartment.

Apparently the tenant in question began hoarding like crazy about two years ago. There hadn’t been a problem previous. The landlord eventually served eviction papers, which were enforced after a more than one-year court battle, leaving Fernandez to tidy up.

Location of the studio apartment is not known, but the former tenant was apparently a hoarder.

This will give you nightmares, for sure. Exterminators in the clip below show off an apartment in shambles – trash everywhere, walls crawling, and even a dead cat.

The following description accompanies the clip.

Tenant recently vacated 1 day ago and lived in this fascinating studio apartment on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. He lived with millions of little cockroaches which obviously didnt sit well with neighbors especially when the smell that came out of the apartment was like a rotting corpse. (LITERALLY)

Best of all the tenant lived and slept on the comfortable mattress as if nothing was wrong with his home.
